Question about Yamaha Virago 250 Motorcycles
I just replaced the headlight bulb and it has blown again.
The obvious cause would be a bad voltage regulator. If you search google there are some pretty easy ways to test that. I have the same motorcycle that had the same issue and the regulator tested fine. I noticed that the entire wiring harness was getting hot as well. It ended up being a jumper that someone had put in place of a fuse. The jumper wasn't letting enough current travel through the electrical system. I removed the jumper and installed a fuse. Problem solved.

The XV250 has a total oil capacity of 1.8 litres but that's only from completely dry. If you're simply replacing the oil there will always be some left behind after draining and in that case you will need 1.4 litres. If you're replacing the oil filter at the same time you'll need slightly more ... 1.6 litres.

not only headlight is energised when the key is turned on,so it could be anything on the switch,dont just replace it over and over,your wire harness will continue to acrue damage. Check for fuse purpose, then look at that circuit for damage
Tail light may be blown or be grounding out.(may be the problem)

1) to take the front upper cowl out (along with mirrors, push clips under the cowl, cowl screws)
2) with this you will get access to the headlight assembly
3) disconnect the sockets, and replace the bulb
4) assemble in the reverse manner
